Water safety Dordrecht

12 februari 2020


On the day of the highest water level in years, I attended (February 10) a meeting related to water safety in the SpuiLAB 210 Dordrecht. The participants’ input is used by the Zuid-Holland-Zuid Safety Region to draw up a long-term evacuation strategy. Furthermore, to make residents of Dordrecht ‘self – and together resilient’, even at high water. Dordrecht is located at a crossroads of rivers, where the influence of the sea at high water / north-westerly storm also has a reinforcing influence.

In Spuilab210, the municipality of Dordrecht, Bureau van Veen and the EcoShape Foundation are working together on natural solutions for climate adaptation.
